Due to COVID-19, New Jersey Elections are pushed to July 7th, and now will be Primarily Vote-By-Mail.
On May 15, 2020, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order #144 stating that the July 7th Primary Election will be conducted primarily by Vote by Mail (“VBM”), with limited in-person polling locations open on Primary Election Day. VBM will be new to many Morris County Residents; and the process itself is being adapted for activation at scale in light of the health crisis. It is important for voters to understand how the new process will work.
